Shaw Air Force Base

Archie will protect Shaw Air Force Base, the installation that brought his family to Sumter and allowed him the blessing of growing up in South Carolina. Thousands of men and women in the 20th Fighter Wing and United States Army Central (USARCENT) call South Carolina home during their service, and many stay to raise families and contribute to the community after their commitment ends. The thousands of civilian jobs that depend upon Shaw AFB offer vital economic impact to this district and to the state as a whole. Archie supports the creation of a 21st century fighting force that can protect American interests worldwide based upon the advice of our best military minds and the experience of our men and women in uniform, not the lobbying of defense contractors. The United States should neither hide from a fight nor go looking for one, instead, our use of military force should be dispensed strategically, carefully, and conservatively.
